The old stuff

 

Continuum

 

 

Great album, Pino and Steve Jordan holding it down.

 

Having got into a ‘Top 20 Albums’ type conversation with a friend, I will probably be listening to one of these shortly:

 

So; Ah Via Musicom; Physical Graffiti; Sunburst Finish; Continuum; Argus; Bad Co; Moving Pictures; No Parlez; Rio; Regatta de Blanc; The Royal Scam; Gold Plated; Crosby Stills Nash; Rumours; Robben Ford & The Blue Line; Lean Into It; Houses of the Holy; Us; Communique.

I saw Peter Bruntnell at a festival in Edinburgh a few years ago, alongside Steve Earle and Emmylou Harris. 
To say he was seriously sartorially challenged is an understatement. The music was good and the anorak was disgusting. 
Steve Earle used to be good, I’ve seen him many times and played many of his songs live, but he’s turned into an opinionated bore. Emmylou was, and still is, great.

I’m not sure what you’re saying about Peter Bruntnell but I’ve got most of his cds and I’ve seen him live in small venues twice

 

I think he is a great undiscovered talent 

 

regarding Steve Earle as with everything for me it’s the music that counts and I like his music - it doesn’t matter to me whether “he’s turned into an opinionated bore”

 

as long as “opinionated bore”s are talented, write and sing songs that I like that’s all that matters and I’m more than happy to listen to them and buy their music

Bruntnell is hardly undiscovered. He’s just not on many peoples radar. I wasn’t judging his music just his unfortunate choice of clothes at that event. 
Much of Steve Earles music is very good, and as I said I’ve covered many of his songs live over the years. But his shows here in the UK descended into lengthy between songs diatribes on American politics. Still a fan of the music, but I wouldn’t pay money to see him again.

Yes I agree that’s a pain - if only musicians and actors would keep to what they do best

What if they're better at political rants than making music? Also, what if some artists use music primarily as a way for getting messages across to the unwashed masses rather than standing on a box at Speakers Corner or whatever equivalent they have in the US?

Bought a couple of bits on Bandcamp today:

 

Dreamwell - Modern Grotesque

https://dreamwell.bandcamp.com/album/modern-grotesque

Post hardcore, basically the band I had on my head to start - think a mathier/heavier Touché Amoré

 

Chamber - Cost Of Sacrifice

https://chambertn.bandcamp.com/album/cost-of-sacrifice

Dissonant math/metal-core, I saw one of Hate5six's live videos and loved it

 

Kowloon Walled City - Container Ships

https://kowloonwalledcity.bandcamp.com/album/container-ships

Kinda doomy post-metal, the first ISIS record is the closest touch point I can hear, some lovely Alembic bass tone too.
